I must confess I don't have a particular opinion on ramp/kerb/sloped_curb.
"ramp" IIRC it's already an "official" tag.

However, I guess these are tiny details, and we should instead focus on the
main "sidewalk" tagging :)

You can see a couple of sidewalks tagged this way (load the areas in your
favourite editor, since we'd need some more zoom):

  http://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=37.649984&mlon=12.597751&zoom=18&layers=M
  http://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=37.58996&mlon=12.787694&zoom=18&layers=M
  http://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=37.584398&mlon=12.843977&zoom=18&layers=M

These are mainly proofs-of-concept, since my area needs other things before
getting to sidewalk-mapping :)

Kindly,
David
